Hello there /music/
Since we don't have a thread to discuss Jazz music. I decided to create one.
Most jazz, I get the impression it's more fun for the players than the listeners. I like Sun Ra though, his music and his approach to life.
If you listen to more jazz, you will find it fun.
>>4 I've listened to a fair bit over the years, but nothing really grabs me. I appreciate the musicianship, but that's not what I listen to music for. Hmmm, I like chaotic free jazz, and I like jazz flavours infused in other genres, but I can't think of a straight "jazz album" I love. Can you recommend me some high-energy, maybe psychedelic, fun jazz, with really audacious - cheeky even - compositional tricks? Nothing which is focussed on "creating a mood" or "painting a picture" or anything too wanky (I mean the wrong kind of wanky)
Hey. Let me know what do you think of these:
Komeda Quintet — Astigmatic
Pat Martino — Exit
>>6 Thanks so much for taking the time to make me a list! I'll give them my full attention and let you know. I'm starting with Tõnu Naissoo Trio, pretty cool so far!
>>6 Hi! I'm about to listen to Pat Martino's "Nightwings", and noticed that sorted by album it follows Cardiacs' "Nighttracks - The Janice Long Sessions", which is a very tough act to follow and also a good idea of the BLOODY CHEEK that musically thrills me!
